CREATIVE WRITING VERSE 

Promise Me by @judyannetM

Heal.

I just wanted you to heal. Be better. Forget. Heal.

 

I picked up the phone.

Knew I should not have

But it was Sunday morning

The sun was out,

The tree outside my window dancing in the wind.

And Sundays like this have a way of getting into my head

So I gathered myself on the couch

The one by the window

And called you.

 

You received my call with a scream

So shrill so unexpected

I jumped

dropped the phone with a quick fuck

sat down, picked up the phone, listened

I remember thinking

How do I make you stop?

My ears hurt

But I let your scream pierce through my heart

Let me feel you feeling your pain

Then you stopped

 

โ€œNihalโ€ I whispered

Silence

I knew you were there

Heard your labored breath

Nina Simone in the background

I hang up and thought

Good! At least you have Nina.

 

I am letting you let the pain have you

Let the pain tear you apart at night

Walk with you during the day

But

You cannot let pain make a home in you.

Promise me, Nihal.

Promise me.

 

This is a sequel to Heal
